MoCo’s Katie Ledecky Now Owns All 15 Of The Top Times Recorded in Women’s 1500m

Montgomery County’s very own Katie Ledecky finished the 1500m with a time of 15:29.64 and now now owns all of the top 15 times ever recorded in the event. According to, “her dominant performance found her with a two second lead over second place after just 150m. By 200m, she had separated herself by a full bodylength and at the halfway mark, Ledecky was nearly half a pool’s length ahead of her nearest competitor.”

Ledecky was raised in Bethesda, where she attended Little Flower School through eighth grade and attended high school at Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart, where she graduated in 2015. “It’s amazing what a morning off can do,” said Ledecky to Scott Bregman of “I just wanted to finish on a good note. I really don’t like finishing a meet with a bad swim, so I just really wanted to have a great one tonight. That’s – I think – the first time I’ve been under 15:30 since before the pandemic so I’m really happy with that.”

Ledecky will next compete in the World Aquatics Championships, which will be in held in Fukuoka, Japan, from July 14-30. Ledecky will participate in four individual events– the 200m, 400m, 800m, and 1500m freestyles.
